Alas, poor Yorick!

When I first saw this photo, sent in by Eiji, my first reaction was WOW. I love how the yellow in the spiders pops against the muted gray of the skull. This tattoo really grabs your attention! Unfortunately I don’t know who the artist is that did it but I have to say, hats off to them. From what I gather, Eiji is a Japanese tattoo artist with incredible talent. The shading in the skull is beautiful as well. It almost looks like a graphite drawing.

  1. This piece is so awesome, it really creeped me out because of the spiders, and especially their legs.
    Seriously, this is stunning, and like, award-winning. Wow.

  2. somebody please claim this piece!!! it’s fucking fantastic! and seriously creepy. but really, we must know who this artist is.

  3. Oh, let me make a correction here. I believe Eiji is the tattoo artist, not the wearer of this piece. Unfortunately (for me) their site (I think it is theirs anyway) is in Japanese and I can’t read it.

    Perhaps Eiji can post some contact details?
